Charlotte, we made it through COVID-19 lockdown. And now, spring is calling us outdoors.
If you’re tired of the Zoom workouts and feel ready to venture outdoors to some socially-distanced fitness classes, we’ve got some great choices for you. Some are even free.
1210 E. 36th St.
SWEATNET: From dropsound HIIT Pilates to Yoga on a Yacht, Sweatnet has something for every outdoor fitness fan.
COST: $9.95/month or $28.95 for 3 months for a membership or various rates for drop-ins.
5000 Whitewater Center Pkwy.
Not feeling a yoga flow? There are plenty of other fitness activities at the Whitewater Center — one of them has your name on it.
OUTDOOR FITNESS AT THE YMCA: Squat racks, dumbbells, rowers, benches, sandbags and other equipment are available outdoors, plus outdoor group exercise. At the Dowd, check out the rooftop track for a run with a view or group fitness classes (also held on the top floor of the Dowd Y’s parking deck).
FREE BOOT CAMPS: Through the rest of May, the Y is hosting free boot camps open to the public, so drag your roommate along.

You can also take a new virtual workout outdoors to your patio, yard or a park. Dozens of Charlotte gyms and studios are still offering classes virtually, with choices including yoga, pilates, strength training and more.
There are newer sections of Charlotte’s greenway trails to try that opened up during COVID-19.
